7 Ages Caesar Racer

Harley-Davidson FXD custom
Ian Solley of British custom shop 7 Ages just can’t leave his Harley-Davidson FXD alone. This is the third incarnation of his ’99 Dyna Super Glide, and his most radical customization yet. The frame is a hand-made item, powdercoated in Dupont RAL Signal Orange, and fitted with completely custom bodywork painted by Image Design. Ian has also fitted whopping 23” wheels, which are kept in check by Harrison Billet brakes and a six-pot caliper at the front. Stainless steel is everywhere: the pipes, swingarm, battery cover, bars, peg supports and gearshift are all in stainless. The sporty look is a departure from 7 Ages’ previous retro-tinged customs, but the next 7 Ages bike will be even more unusual. That one’s going to be based on a BMW R80, inspired by Mark van der Kwaak’s DBBP BMW bobber (popularly known as the ‘CAD bike’). There’s more about the Caesar Racer on the 7 Ages blog; or head over to photographer David Bartholomew’s site for the full portfolio of images.
